Re: Power tripping

First off, lets make sure its not the wiring in your house. disconnect the dishwasher and plug in something else and see if it trips the fuse. also what amps is the breaker rated at?

Dishwasher is tripping RCD, can it be repaired?

not necessary-- yet-- to buy a new unit
tripping the rcd is an indication of earth leakage which could amount to water in the wall plug across pins, moisture across the power board, water in the motor, faulty heater element
what you need is an accredited electrician to run tests on the system to find the reason for the earth leakage that is tripping the rcd
the rcd works from microvolts and operates in nano seconds to prevent electrocution of the operator
testing before buying may save heaps of cash

Suddenly I have no power to my dishwasher. I checked my main house electrical fuses and they seem fine. Is their another fuse in the washer itself to check?

Do some more experiments...Check power is getting to the power point at the back of machine (maybe plug in a lamp or something if you don't have a multi-meter), check external cable for damage (while not plugged in). Is there any signs of power at all? Any lights that come on or beeps made? If your model doesn't have lights to begin with, it could be a problem in the trip switch in the door for example. There probably is an internal fuse... only problem is that if it did blow, it might have for a reason... keep investigating

Power trips 1-2 secs after on button pressed. Been

hi - i would tend to think that theres an electrical problem with the machine, as most dishwashers will start with the drain operations before commencing any cycle - the drain pump may well be the cause..

My dishwasher doesn't start. When I press start button the light turns down and every appliances turn off. kindly advice if it is related to electrical system or not

If the main circuit TRIPS off the moment the dish washer is started , then it is possible that there is a heavy short within the washer.
To find out the reason you will need to discconnect the power to the washer, the disconnect the power to the controller unit, the motor and the inlet vavle. Using a multimeter you can checck for short in the circuit. If so isolate the circuit.
Now reconnect and see if the power trips, is so isolate one by one the circuit till you come to the failed component. It can be the power controller, valve, motor, capacitor or surge protector.

Dishwasher is 'tripping' electricity to the house fuseboard as soon as water heating begins in any cycle - cannot locate thermostat to test ?

This can be due to the fact that the heaters draw up more current than required and so trips the circuit. it will be important to remove and check the heaters, check if the contactors are faulty that feed supply to the heaters. Also if the trip is a ELCB- then with some leak in the circuit , motor, heaters, the circuit will trip. Hence check the electrical, check the ground on your dishwasher. Use an external ground and check

Power overload swith in the house has started tripping when the dishwasher is started

Is this happening only now! If it was working OK earlier and tripping now only it may be due to some electrical fault inside the machine.

Switch off all the high power appliances and try the dish washer. If it works you have to check the breaker overall power rating!

If it trips during dish washer ON, the fault could be in the heater circuit of your machine. Heater Insulation would have become weak etc.

Faulty Diplomat Dishwasher - tripping mains fuse


My dishwasher a diplomat 12 program (hja8640) was doing exactly the same where every now and again when turned on at the plug it would trip. After engineers coming out several times and failing to fix it, they condemed it. New one was supplied, however did exactly the same thing. The electrician came back, checked the RCD power breaker and this was fine. It was then discovered that some dishwashers and washing machines send out a lot of earth leakage, combine this with other appliances on in the house can be enough to trip.

Soloution. The electrician removed the kitchen circut from the RCD breaker and intalled another breaker RCD just for the kitcehn loop, this therefore means that the kitchen has a seperate trip from the rest of the house, and touch wood, has solved the problem. This mind you has taken about three months to work out so i hope it saves you some time.

Always use a fully qualified electrician though.

AEG Favourit 446

Our AEG dishie also tripped the light regularly. Turned out there was a water leak by the motors and the cut off device wasn't working and when the water filled up too much it tripped. Move the dishie and if water 'sloshes' out the back, then you know the problem, or if not, take the side panels off so you can see underneath, if there is water at the bottom of the machine. Hope you find the problem.
